    We gave our guests a flower lei to incorporate Hawaii into our favors; I think it's a great way to put a little local flavor into your reception. Maracas are a great way to incorporate Mexico into a Mexican DW too (just a thought) :)

      I am doing OOT bags welcoming and thanking those for traveling. In the bag there will be all kinds of goodies. The Knot had a clearence sale about a week ago, so I bought some items from them. Then I am making some favors to either put in the bags also.

        We need to do a bit of preplanning here, to make sure that we get a picture with each and every guest on our wedding day, and we'll print out the picture, frame it, then mail it to the guests with the thank you cards after the wedding.

        The only snag I've come accross is where to find these frames that I can fill with sand!
        This is a great idea! I have been going back and forth about whether to do OOT bags, I hate getting things from weddings that I never use, so I want to make sure that what ever I do for my guests is meaningful and won't go to waste. I think I might just get some local fare when we get to Jamaica (rum, coffee, etc.)

          We're also doing OOT bags but will have a thank you token gift at our dinner. My FI loves lottery tickets so each guest will receive one with a funny label on it.

            We are doing OOT for guests staying at the hotel. The bags will include mugs from E-bay, notebooks and pens from the dollar store, hand sanitizer, personalized magnets from Vistaprint (free), a welcome postcard/letter (also free from Visataprint), a postcard, coffee or rum from Jamaica which we will purchase when we get there, and a scented beach themed candle. Someone had a good idea of putting a wrist coil keychain with a badge holder in each bag. I might also include this if I can find some at a good (cheap) price.

            We are using the same photo coasters as AnnaC for favors. I purchased them at a good price from e-weddingfavors.com and got the name tags to go with them. I also ordered business cards from Visaprint (free) for the place cards. The cards are plain white with the wedding of (our names) at the bottom. I'll do calligraphy to write in our guests names. We wanted to do a group trip, but the cost will not work with our budget.

              I love the mini rum bottles, what a good idea. We were going to bring colored paper fans for the ladies but didn't know what to get for the guys. I think we might use your rum idea.

                I have thought about doing OOT bags, but I have not yet figured out the details yet (like if I will just make one for every room, or per person, or what I will include in them) we will def. not do favors...I just think it would be unnecessary considering we are only having 21-26 ppl & just seems to small of a group to do favors. Anyway, I am def. checking out the OOT threads for ideas, if you're interested I would do the same to figure out what you are going to decide. Good luck :)
                I absolutely LOVE my life & ADORE my little family :)

                  I would like to do bothe the OOT bags and the favors but the way the airline charges for extra luggage it might be tough, plus it seems like it can get costly!

                    Hi! we are doing OOT bags for our guests that do get to make it to Jamaica with us. Then when we get home and do our AHR, we are having Koozie cups made with witty as well as cute saying on them, for each of our guests to use and take home. As far as like a table favor.. we arnt doing those. I really like the idea of little photo albums though.. maybe I can use that too!! Good luck!

                      Does anyone know where I can find the small bottles of rum?
